Get excited, Reba fans!
A couple months ago, it was revealed that country superstar Reba McEntire would be returning to the small screen in a brand new ABC drama.
Developed by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, the show is “described as a Southern Gothic soap opera that is set in motion after a suspected act of terrorism happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, KY.”
McEntire will play Ruby Adair, the small town sheriff who must team up with the an FBI agent of Middle Eastern descent to help her solve the crimes. A short time ago, the show was green lit to film the pilot and now, some of the cast has been announced.
Haven actress Emily Rose has been cast to play Vonda Jean, the town’s coroner, who is also a former beauty pageant runner-up.
According to TVLine, McEntire and Rose will be joined by Jack Coleman (Heroes), Amanda Detmer (Necessary Roughness), Ryan McPartlin (Chuck), Ben Esler (Hell on Wheels), Natalie Hall (Star-Crossed, All My Children) and Saidah Ekulona (Impastor).
In an interview with Taste of Country Nights, McEntire revealed they will probaby film the pilot in March. They will then have to “wait for the upfronts to see if we get picked up,” she says. “Hopefully we’ll be shooting in the fall or January of next year. Before we start doing preliminary planning we need to get the go-ahead.”
